Study medicine at Manchester

145 years delivering outstanding medical education.

Taught master’s in medicine

Whether you want to gain specialist knowledge in a specific area, brush up on your skills as a scientist or go into research, we have a taught master's course in medicine for you.

Manchester is home to both one of the largest medical schools in the UK and top researchers working at the forefront of the medical field.

We offer postgraduate taught courses covering a wide range of disciplines for students from both medical and non-medical backgrounds.

Become a specialist

Specialist courses cover occupational, aesthetic and musculoskeletal medicine, paediatric anaesthesia, and medical education. You’ll learn from educators based in local hospitals and specialist NHS services. Some courses, such as our MSc in Medical and Molecular Virology, cover relevant topics such as COVID-19.

"...there was always an ethos of setting the bar high and overcoming all obstacles."

Start your research training

We offer master's courses that are designed to help you prepare for PhD study and a career in medical research, giving you a head start if you want to become a research scientist.

"Several modules in the course also help to develop more generic skills such as critical appraisal of literature and evidence as well as research methods to help improve clinical practice and evidence based learning."

Access unique facilities

Depending on your area of interest, you'll have access to world-leading facilities such as our Genome Editing Unit, which is the only UK core facility that both uses CRISPR-Cas9 and trains others to do so.

Students on our clinical courses will benefit from Manchester's close links to local NHS hospitals, with the opportunity to explore real-life clinical scenarios as part of your studies.
